Ronald McDonald House Oxford is within Oxford University Hospital's John Radcliffe. During her adult life Rebekah was under treatment from Oxford so the hospital there is special. We have a number of projects running to support Ronald McDonald House in Oxford.

Ronald McDonald House within the childrens' department at Oxford University Hospitals was the eleventh house to open in the UK and was the first to be opened within the hospital building itself.  The house offers seventeen rooms where parents can get some much needed rest, reassured by the fact that they are under the same roof as their children. The house has everything a family could need in order to continue as far as they can a normal life. There are kitchens, laundry and a lounge area.

In 2016 the house helped 582 families stay close to their children.

Oxford Hospital offers many regional and super- regional specialist services and is the home to one of only four paediatric craniofacial services in the country. This means families and children travel from all over Britain to receive vital care.

.In January 2007, Ronald McDonald  opened a 17 bedroom House located on the top floor of the children’s hospital, which accommodated over 600 families last year. However there were many more who needed help. The House does not have the capacity to look after every family who needs a place to stay and is unable to support any families who have babies in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit. In addition, it cannot provide all the support on offer in other Ronald McDonald Houses.

Like all specialist children’s hospitals, Oxford Children’s Hospital provides services across a wide region. Children and their families travel from all over the UK, including Northern Ireland, to receive vital care. The house is working in partnership with Oxford University Hospitals to develop a new Ronald McDonald House within the grounds of the John Radcliffe Hospital and to extend services to include Newborn Intensive Care. The new house would be purpose built and better able to fully meet the current and future demand for rooms and offer a true ‘home away from home’.

The 62-bedroom House will be constructed in grounds currently identified by the Hospital Trust as a development site adjacent to the Children and Newborn Services. The House would also have communal living facilities, including kitchens, lounges, playrooms and a laundry room. 

Many sick children are treated in specialist hospitals far from home, which can be a frightening experience. For the family it can mean long drives, splitting the family unit or paying vast sums of money on hotel accommodation. That’s why the free service Ronald McDonald House provides is so vital to these families.

With the good news that planning permission has been granted the charity will consider the next stages as a priority and will work with the hospital and partners over the funding and timing of the new development. A capital appeal has not been ruled out to raise the necessary funds. Similar projects have been in the region of £10 to £13 million.

As well as having some fund raising projects specifically dedicated to Ronald McDonald House, Oxford, we regularly send cards to families wishing them well. You can sign a card, simply go to our sign a card area.
